Windows Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview build marks an important milestone in the development of the next version of Internet Explorer. A significant part of the platform preview is focused on new or proposed World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) web standards. The goal of industry standards is actually “interoperability.” For HD television standards, that means that multiple TVs can render same rich content in a consistent way. In web case, that means same HTML, script, and formatting markup work the same across different browsers. Eliminating need for different code paths for different browsers benefits everyone, and creates more opportunity for developers to innovate on great web content. In conjunction with our first preview release, we’re submitting 104 test cases across six different proposed or recommended web standards,” revealed Jason Upton.
